Kendrick Lamar goes home to Compton for his new visual for “King Kunta” off his critically acclaimed album To Pimp A Butterfly.


Thinking outside of the box, the video premiered in the heart of Times Square, NYC and L.A. Live in Downtown Los Angeles Wednesday afternoon. In the Director X visual, K.Dot returns home to mob with the homies and show off his new dance move. The video definitely gives you a 2 Pac “California Love” feel when you watch. K. Dot spoke to MTV News on the  making of “King Kunta” visual :

I just went back to that same Compton Swap Meet, jumped on the roof of the Compton Swap Meet and shot “King Kunta” there, and all them kids was out….looking, and a good friend of mine say ‘you was one them kids looking at Pac when he was up here doing that now they looking at you’ and it blew me away. It trip me up…fifteen years later man I’m doing that same thing Pac was doing, right in Compton it’s just a beautiful thing

Very dope,peep the Kendrick Lamar’s new visual for “King Kunta” below.
